Access Issue: Echo Canyon Seasonal Closure: Jan. 1 - second Saturday in April Details

Description

Typical Echo cobbles and edges lead to a steeper mid section where you will find the crux. As with all new routes at Echo, it will take a little time for this to clean up. All bolts are new 1/2" (most are stainless). A better sequence was found and cleaned up in the middle of the route which brought the grade down a bit. Named after the train conductors who like to blow their horns right while you are at the crux.

Location

On the right side of the Dry Wall. The second route right of the little grove of trees and bushes.

Protection

9 bolts to anchors

I liked this route a lot and think it's a great addition to the crag. Seems to be cleaning up nicely, I only used one hold I thought might be suspect. Mar 8, 2016

All holds solid today. Nice to have something more techy than its neighbor to the left, but more sustained than the 10s to the right. Sep 2, 2016

This route was quite fun and not too chossy either. Definitely a good addition to the crag. Much better route than the other 10's on the wall. Sep 15, 2016
